(From the publisher):
Kids from broken families were about as popular as people who had done time in jail. Tracy ought to know. Her own mother had said it a few years ago-long before Tracy's father walked out. She hadn't planned on sneaking out to that party-but suddenly anything seemed better than staying home with her impossible mother. And there stood Tandy. He was "far out," the girls said enviously. Once, at school, their eyes had met briefly. She would never forget that look. For an instant, she had seen beyond the cool detachment into something very deep, and angry. Bit they had never spoken. Not until tonight.
